Why certainly! I thought I could just use the peice that I cut out as a ramp, but it wasn't long enough. So I looked around and found an old plastic lid from an old sterilite tub that had cracked. I cut it out and hoped I could just bend it but it was too briyyle and snapped off. So I tapped it with aluminum tape. I figured it would not soak up the moisture and get water logged. To give the ramp some grip, I simply made some striping with a hot glue gun, and let it cool, of course. The base of the ramp where it sits in the tub is attached by pop rivets. But anything would work really. You could use silicone, but then you have to leave it sit for 24 hours, and probably would need something to hold it in place while it dries. I have some hobby clamps that work great for that. However I hate waiting, so I went with the rivets.
